Are you interested in teaching your children about other cultures? If so, your family might be the perfect fit fot he Secondary School Exchange Visitor Program.
International Student Exchange (ISE), a globally recognized not-for-profit organization, is looking for volunteer families interested in hosting an exchange student in the upcoming school year. Hosting opportunities are available for five, ten and twelve month terms, and families may choose the student they wish to host.
ISE students are fully insured, have their own spending money, and are eager to learn about U.S. culture and eduction. Students come to the U.S. to study, expand their global understanding, and represent their home country as diplomats. All we ask of our host families is they offer our students a safe and comfortable place to live and treat them like part of the family.
If you are interested in offering a student the chance to be a part of your family, please do not hesitate to contact our local Regional Manager, Lisa Denison at 1-800-573-8514, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.evergreen.iseusa.org to apply or get more information.

The Massena High School Robotics team recently held their 4th Annual McFun Night fundraiser at the McDonald’s Main Street Restaurant in Massena where they raised over $450. Each year team members give a few hours of an evening volunteering at McDonald’s, and in return, McDonald’s gives a percentage of all their sales for the evening back to the team. It’s a great partnership for both the team, and for McDonald’s.
The team is part of FIRST Robotics Team 229 and will be competing at the NY Tech Valley Regional in Troy, NY and in the Chesapeake Regional in College Park, MD in the spring. Last year the team won the Granite State Regional, won the Motorola Quality Award at the Boston Regional, and traveled to the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO where they competed alongside 400 other high school teams from all over the world.
The mission of FIRST Robotics is to show students of every age that science, technology, and problem-solving are not only fun and rewarding, but are proven paths to successful careers and a bright future for us all. Students participating in FIRST Robotics are significantly more likely to attend college, major in science or engineering, and be outstanding future employees and citizens. FIRST is about changing our culture… for the better.
